Yes, There are Still More Ways to Lose Weight

waistline being measuredEat better, sleep well, and exercise—these are the foundation of a weight loss plan. But do you know there are still more ideas or ways to get lean and be healthy?

Here are some of them:

1. Workout with a personal trainer

Here’s one reason to consider going to a personal training studio for women in Beverly, MA: personal training can change your attitude toward fitness. In a study published in the Journal of Sports Science and Medicine, most of the participants moved up in their stages of motivational readiness to exercise. The study suggests that having a personal trainer can keep a person motivated to get fit.

2. Live near the gym

It looks like saying “out of sight, out of mind” also applies to your fitness commitment. In fact, those who lived closer to a fitness facility had a lower body fat percentage and slimmer waistlines than those who don’t. The average difference was almost an inch for those who are near at least six different workout locations.

3. Choose a home far from a fast food restaurant

The same study also suggests that living away from fast food restaurants can have a positive impact on your health. Participants who were two kilometers away from a burger bar had 0.26-centimeter smaller waist than the ones who had access within half a kilometer.

4. Do a high-intensity training

Let’s face it: losing weight is difficult. Keeping your exercise routine is much harder. But these ideas could help you stay motivated to maintain an ideal weight and stay healthy.
